Chicago deathcore metal band, OCEANO, are quickly gaining notoriety as the angriest band on the planet and now, it seems, their anger is starting to rub off onto their fans.
At the band's recent gig on December 10th at the Chenga 57 indoor skate park in Lorain, Ohio, the aptly-titled "Seasons Beatings" tour took a much more literal meaning. OCEANO got the crowd so worked up that a full-scale brawl erupted during the band's set, even forcing front-man ADAM WARREN to stop the band mid-song.
"Everyone was moshing and getting a little crazy - just like always;" says the former backyard wrestler. "There were these kids around the pit that kept getting hit and didn't like it too much, so they went after the kids who were hitting them. It kept going back and forth and more and more kids were getting involved each time."
It also didn't help that the band was playing in a skate park were members of the audience could have come flying out at any angle. "Since the layout of the skate park we were playing in wasn't exactly like a typical club show, we were concerned for everyone's safety. Once things started getting ridiculous I had to step in there myself to break things up. I headlocked this one big guy who just wouldn't stop and was totally destroying some other poor kid. I told him that if he didn't chill out that he'd be the reason that the show got ruined for everyone else."
Fortunately, after the tension died down and OCEANO was able to complete their set without further incident.
